New Customizable Get Started Kit
Bare Minerals Saved My Skin
I had been battling newly acquired '20's acne' and seriously losing. I had never worn full foundation, as I always had nice skin (I was never the kind of girl that had to spend forever making sure my make-up looked 'just right'), but my problems areas were spreading, and using concealer on just the problem spots was only making it worse. A co-worker recommend that I go into a Bare Escentuals Boutique and have one of the consultants do a 'make-under', and just see how I liked it. She RAVED about how wonderful it was, and couldn't say enough good things about the product. A week or so later I ended up in our local mall, and decided 'what the heck, won't hurt to just try it, right?' And man am I glad I did!!!! I have been wearing Bare Minerals almost a full year now, and my skin is almost entirely clear. It not only gave me an even complexion, but (and with some help from the Blemish Therapy product) it helped clear up my skin. I will be using this product as long as I live. Thank you Bare Minerals for giving me my clear skin back!
1. Three pumps PURELY NOURISHING MOSITURIZER - NORMAL TO DRY SKIN (let dry)
2. Pea sized amount FOUNDATION PRIMER ORIGINAL+NEUTRALIZING (I mix them together for redness control, let dry)
3. BLEMISH THERAPY (for any soon to be blemishes)
4. ORIGINAL FOUNDATION (swirl, tap, & buff)
5. CORRECTING CONCEALER (for dark circles and any other problem areas, I find that it sits better when I put it on after my foundation)
6. WARMTH (Using the 3 shape buff on each side of face)
7. READY BLUSH - THE ONE (love this color, so delicate and feminine, great for fair skin)
Hope this review helped any potential Bare Minerals converts out there!
I have had this kit for exactly 6 hours. I am in awe and love with this product. First, the kit having the primer, foundation, warmth, and mineral veil along with application brushes is an amazing value. Secondly, I am not a makeup wearer. The most I wear is eye shadow and lipstick with a hint of mascara. It feels as though I'm not wearing anything and it keeps my T-zone from being oily. My only problem with this product was the issues I had trying to determine my correct foundation color but they may have been due to the consultant. Buy this because I will definitely be buying more.
This is the best kit ever!
I love the way it covers - I'm not convinced that I'm that light so I add the warmth to tone it down. My uneasiness about the color of the product is not going to affect the rating of the product. I think the consultant at the store just got my color wrong. The product itself is AMAZING! After not being able to apply any products on my face after the birth of my son 22 months ago due to allergies - being able to find products that don't burn my face or make it itch has been a GODSEND! Thanks BE!
Absolutely Awesome! :)
I'm in love with it! When I first tried it I was scared to try it on me so I tried it on my mom who is 2 shades lighter, but it matched her skin tone despite the fact it was darker. It blended well into her skin and gave her the glow. A couple days later I tried it out on me and fell in love! It made me looking fabulous and covered my imperfections well without looking cakey. I chose the original foundation for my kit. Loved the bronzer also because I love the bronze look it gave my face not looking too fake. My favorite in this kit was the mineral veil! I always finish my look with the mineral veil with all my other foundations and it still looks wonderful even the effects it gives!
Love this kit!
I absolutely love this kit. I went with the Ready option for less mess and was glad I did. The powder still gets loose, but not anywhere near as bad a the others would. My only complaint, and the reason I didn't give the fifth star, is that after only a month of daily use the Full Flawless and Flawless Application brushes are losing hairs. Other than that, I'm pleased as a peach with the package. If you opt for the Ready foundation I advise you to go into a store and get colour matched before purchasing. I am normally fair to light, but with this foundation I need Fairly Medium.
best foundation ever
I went into the sephora store to get this kit but instead got the sephora exclusive bare minerals 10 pc get started kit! the concealer and foundation make it feel like youre not wearing makeup and it covers all imperfections! I definitely recommend this product as i am allergic to all make up except for bare minerals. best makeup on the market!
My skin is so ugly I just purchased this past weekend and I love it! It covers up all my imperfection. Total confident booster!!!
Ladies with problem skin
I have the most sensitive, problematic skin ever. Red spots, acne, dryness and oil. Almost all foundations would either look terrible on me (cakey or highlight dry flakes) or make me break out. I was skeptical to try something new because of those reasons, but it's definitely been worth it. It looks so natural on my skin and covers up even the darkest blemishes with the concealer brush (you don't need to buy extra concealer, just use the regular foundation and the concealer brush). It leaves my skin soft after I take it off and has cleared up my acne SO MUCH in only two weeks. So if you have problematic skin like mine, and aren't sure if this is right for you, DO IT. I promise you'll thank yourself.
My 1st Makeup Kit
I never wore makeup besides eyeshadow before buying this kit. I had done my research and decided to go in to one of the local stores in my area to get color matched and buy the set. The people at the boutique were very nice. I was color matched with warm deep in the original foundation and she even taught me how to apply my foundation, mineral veil and bronzer. I don't use the bronzer as much because I don't feel like I need it so I just use it as a eyeshadow. I still haven't gotten used to wearing it everyday yet but I am loving it so far. A little goes a long way so I have barely made a dent in any of the products. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking to try makeup for the first time or just to try out Bare Minerals products. This is the perfect starter kit with everything you need from foundation, mineral veil, bronzer, primer, and 3 brushes.
Bare Minerals has changed my skin
I finally stopped into a boutique to give BM a try because 1. I was curious about the new Ready foundation (much better format for me), and 2. I was getting completely fed up with how my skin had been breaking out in the same areas on my face. After my makeover, I was completely wowed by the coverage and threw out all my heavy liquid foundations that were just covering my problem areas. About a month later now, my skin is noticeably clearer, much less acne-prone. I have an oily T-zone, and I've noticed that I can go for much longer without my face getting shiny as well. I actually like my skin and feel confident in it now, even without makeup!
This has completely changed my life and stopped my struggles with my skin. I hope it continues to stay this way through the Bare Minerals products!
